Summer Farm Cottage description

Holiday home
Summer Farm Cottage is a stone built retreat situated in the village of Crakehall in North Yorkshire. Hosting two super king-size bedrooms (one zip/link), as well as a family bathroom and a cloakroom, this property can sleep up to four people. Inside you will also find a kitchen/diner, and an open plan sitting area with a bed. To the outside is off road parking for two cars and an enclosed lawned garden to the front. Resting in a pleasant location with a homely interior, Summer Farm Cottage is a delightful accommodation in a charming part of England.

Crakehall is set around a large central green with a delightful local pub, just a couple of miles from Bedale. The small market town of Bedale is steeped in history, some of which can be found in the local museum. Also within easy reach are many other attractions, including the Constable Burton Hall Gardens with extensive parkland and woodland walks.

From heather-clad moors and limestone scars, to market towns and the steady pace of country life - the sublime Dales await you! Where else in Britain is it as satisfying to sit and do nothing as it is to explore the numerous pursuits on offer?

Over several years we have booked many cottages.. Some have been disappointing, others satisfactory and a few exceptional.Summer Farm Cottage is one of the latter and we will return! Clean, comfortable, convenient for food shopping and set in relaxing surroundings- perfect.

This is a lovely comfortable cottage in a nice quiet location.. It is in a great location, very handy to lots of interesting places. Our only niggling complaint was the lack of some basic cleaning materials such as washing up liquid and such like. We ate out a lot and as there was just the two of us we prefer to wash up as we go along and not use a dishwasher. We enjoyed our stay there and would return at some point in the future.

Summer farm cottage is absolutely beautiful, Maggie the owner is a lovely lady who goes out of her way to make you feel at home, a lovely bunch of flowers, a bottle of wine and a ginger cake we’re waiting for us on arrival, which was a lovely touch.. I have stayed in many cottages, but this one was by far the loveliest with lots of attention to detail, it was very spacious, and Maggie makes sure it is cleaned to a very high standard, it was absolutely spotless. I could not find fault with anything and I’m looking forward to returning with my family very soon. Thank you

It was a beautiful cottage, in a quiet location with great views all around. A great base for exploring the surrounding area. It was very nicely decorated and very well equipped. We look forward to returning again in the future.

We stayed here for a week in order to visit the dales. What a wonderful cottage, excellent accomodation and an excellent location. We had all the facilities we could wish for including a welcome homemade cake and bottle of wine. The only neighbours were the horses, chickens and rabbits. It was so lovely and quiet but still within walking walking distance to the local pub which I can also highly recommend. If you book here you will not be disappointed. Thank you Maggie and Jon I could not have booked anywhere better.

This was a beautiful, well thought out holiday cottage conversion. One of the best we have stayed in. The property was in a very quiet and peaceful location and had a lovely outlook all round. Very handy for shopping in Bedale.

The holiday cottage was in a very quiet, peaceful and beautiful location just outside the village of Crakehall. It was a lovely cottage and yet wasn't far from nearby tourist attractions and local facilities. The area is great for walking and looking round the local villages. It is one of our favourite areas for a holiday.

We booked Sceptre Cottage to accommodate far flung family who were visiting us over Easter - they stayed there and we visited them in the day, ate with them, hunted Easter eggs, admired the horses, cooed over the lambs. It is in a delightful setting - unbelievably peaceful, surrounded by fields with views across to the Wensleydale railway line (trains only during the day, feels just like something out of the Railway Children!). The cottage itself is warm and welcoming, and the owners couldn't be more helpful. A massive recommendation to anyone who wants a comfortable and peaceful base in a lovely part of the world. We shall certainly use it again for extended groups of visitors.

My husband and I had a wonderful week in a beautiful cottage, Maggie the owner couldn't have been more helpful, it was in a perfect location with all mod cons, would definitely recommend it to others.
Mr Harris

We had an absolutely wonderful holiday in a very spacious beautiful cottage. Being situated at the end of a 1/4 mile drive was perfect, so peaceful. Near enough to the A1 for easy access to and from the cottage, so you did not have mile upon mile of country lanes to get to it, just perfect!
Mr Stewart
July 2013
The cottage and surrounding area was very good and the owner was very helpful. The cottage was very comfortable and you could want for nothing, even the weather was brilliant. We would definitely stay there again. The railway was no bother at all, it was nice to see it go past.
Mr Barnett

Great location for visiting York, The Moors, Harrogate, Whitby to name a few. The cottage is perfect. The owners are great who do everything to help you enjoy the holiday including the very welcome cake wine!

This cottage is a real gem of a find. It is finished to a very high standard and is situated in an idyllic setting. There is plenty of room within the cottage ( we were a party of four adults and one child) and the cottage is ideally situated for exploring the Dales and other parts of Yorkshire. The owners were very welcoming and the baby lambs were a firm favourite with our daughter. We came home today and we are already planning our next visit!!

Where would you like me to start? I don't think there is enough space here to write about Sceptre Cottage. Thanks must go to the owners, a great couple, their hard work has paid off, as we say in Fijian, Wananavu.

Decided to rent this cottage so we could spend some time with our grandson who is a soldier based in Catterick. Beautiful immaculate cottage in a lovely peaceful setting. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to get away from the world and have quality time . Jonny and Maggie (owners ) are very helpful and even left a welcome card and bottle of wine. Will be returning over and over again

We stayed in 2011 and the owners were so wonderful, nothing was too much trouble. Being Australian and not knowing the area they came out late at night and took us to the property. We love it so much we will be coming back in 2013.

A great location for sightseeing, out in the country yet close enough to good shops.

Owner was very friendly and helpful, it is a lovely cottage in a ideal location.
August 2012
We will be back - and looking forward to seeing the garden taking more shape and growing. I loved the master bedroom with its huge bed and the stars through the velux wndows. A very comfortable cottage - oh and the homemade cake and bottle of wine on arrival was a real treat.
